The study was conducted from July to November 2018. 64 patients were selected, their age ranged from 14 to 87 years; subjects with symptoms related to gall bladder pathologies were included. Trans-abdominal ultrasound scanning by 3.5 MHz probes was performed, and the maximum length, width, and anterior wall thickness and numbers of gall stones were obtained. The results of the study revealed that the gall stones, increase in relation to increase in the patient's age and weight. Fat infiltration associated with obesity which predispose to cholesterol gall stones in some patients due to high level of cholesterol in their blood. Furthermore, the study found that the gall stones were affected by the parity, contraceptives pills users and family history. However there was no effect of diabetes on occurrence of gall stones. 19 cases showed single stone (29.7%) and 45 cases with multiple stones (70.3%). In addition the gallbladder wall thickness was significantly thicker in case of multiple stones. Trans-abdominal ultrasound is a respectful approach, and should be used confidently in the diagnosis of gall stones and evaluation of the gall bladder pathologies among Sudanese. en_US
